We are heartened at your enthusiasm for the music and particularly, the gear. You were lucky to have walked the boards some of the greats have trod.

Not only were they setting up the gear correctly... in some cases you can hear one or more players going over a lick or a favorite progression, making sure they've got it dialed in. Sometimes testing tempo, see if it feels right. I would bet the sound and light guys were thankful for any clue, would get ready, adjust pots, based on what they heard in between as well.

Now if only they could have refreshed on the lyrics before diving in.
